The Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre: New Resources Released

Please see information from The Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre on the release of three new online resources:

The Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre have added a suite of online resources which are now available on the website. Based on the Review of harmful alcohol use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, there are three new resources available:

  • an animated infographic
  • a HealthInfoByte
  • an eBook

The animated infographic provides an audio visual snapshot of key information found in the review, in an engaging format, while the eBook is an interactive, online version of the review with additional, enhanced features such as embedded videos and illustrations. The HealthInfoByte is part of a series which promotes HealthInfoNet reviews and provides short, ‘byte’ sized information.

Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Drew, says 'As a user of the HealthInfoNet resource we recognise that you are a very diverse group, and often time poor as you strive to make a positive contribution to the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. You require high quality information that is timely, accessible and relevant to support your everyday work.  We also know that people have different ways of learning and absorbing important information. That is why we have developed a range of new digital tools to ensure you get the information you need, when you need it in a form you can easily use in your everyday work.  From interactive eBooks, animated infographics, sound bites including Podcasts, short film and more, all delivering crucial information in a memorable and engaging way – there is a range of ways to keep up to date.'
